While many in the forums bash Steve and his products, he has been an innovator and is an icon in the personal computing and technology world. For that, he deserves our respect and I, for one, hope he gets well soon.

With any success there is a price and he is paying for it. It is what keeps every one in the end equal even though it sucks to have a set back like this.

Personally I don't like iPhone, iPad and Mac-computers. But without Steve's commitment och will to produce spectacular products, I doubt that we would see any smartphones or tablet computers to this date. Let the Mac-lovers sponsor Steve and his projects, while I'll pick and chose which gadget and brand I personally like.

Hope you get well Steve!

Don't like Apple's products but the way they've pushed technology forward has been great. I can't help but feel the other companies I buy from have better products because of his competition.

So, hope you're doing better soon, Steve.

It's already been stated that Foxconn makes a number of 'pieces' for that custom built. Unless it's "Anti-Foxconn Certified" it could still be apart of Foxconn's personal touch.
Which is fair in it's own right, they produce cheap hardware for decent quality. Not amazing, but most Companies would want what gets them the more money then the year before.

Oh, and here's for a speedy recovery to Steve Jobs as well...or at least a modest recovery where you aren't forced to be in bed rest soon after.
I'm sure he'd be happy to see this topic, although there's the common hate there's no disrespect to him personally.

I can agree, but take a look at him 10/15 years ago, even with factoring age into the picture, he looks pretty bad here, like really bad, like cancer bad.

Who's comment is that? They've always had the power to do that, but they don't do it often unless it's been reported by a user and found to actually be justified.

It's always a good day when a miserly person die.
Unfortunatly, miserly people are rich a lot.
So they have a lot of money to buy all what they exist.
They can even buy organs on black market...

Steve has pushed the company in a direction that is both good and bad. I wonder if it is Steve that is responsible for the bad attitude that the company has, that transfers to its fans.

Without Steve, the company might gravitate more towards the mainstream, and probably double their computer market share in the process. I've thought recently though that they should get out of the personal computer business completely and focus on phones, tablets and personal entertainment devices. Seems like that's where the big money is. There are only a certain number of people that will ever buy an Apple computer, but invent a new product like the iPad and sell millions, then invent another new product that we don't know about yet and sell millions of them too.

I guess the old cliche "An Apple a day keeps the doctor away" isn't true in this case.

As much as I loath (secretly jealous of) Steve Jobs, I wish him the best - no one deserves to suffer from cancer.

I dislike Apple products and am seriously annoyed by their "park the brain at the door" fanbase but this is quite sad. What really astounds me is all the talk that the company will not survive his eventual demise. This cult of personality has no place in the computer biz.

Its extremely rare and often impossible for a company to make every single component for their products. I know foxconn does sockets for a number of motherboards. I keep seeing them on the pin protectors for Intel sockets on Asus motherboards.

@Milleman:
Apple didn't pioneer the smartphone or tablet. They merely succeeded in bringing them to the mainstream. Back when I used to do tech work (before all the iProducts even existed,) almost all my clients had smartphones sync'ing with their servers, and tablets were huge with medical clients.
